      I thought he would fit or call cuz af are 0.5,0.3,1.5 so it's profitable.

      For me there is no correlation between AF & Fit/fold tendencies. do you know what AF/aggression factor is?

      Aside from the hand which I cannot judge on, I think you should restudy the statistics article that gives you a good grasp on what statistic tells you what

      Is it not fit/fold but fit/call villains?I misunderstand
      and I thought I know where I stand with this hand, and if he hit he will bet or I can wait draw if he don't hit so I raised inposition.
      Is it also profitable even in MSS?

      Gonchan:
      I think in NL10 we shoule make our decision to be simpleness.
      We must do three things in NL10,preflop tight,postflop Vbet,brave fold.

      No the term is Fit or Fold; he either fits his hand and continues playing or he folds.

      Against those players it is highly profitable to raise with 87o. Against people who just randomly call pre & postflop, raising this is the worst thing you can do because you dont flop Toppair often

      So once again there is no correlation between AF & the way your opponent plays so I advice you to study the articles again to get a better understanding of how statistics work

      I foresee your opponent being loose-passive hence a more or less being a callingstation so raising 87o is a bad idea here
